In addition to regular updates to this website, Niagara Catholic uses Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube to provide our community with up-to-the-minute information on events and activities taking place in our schools and our Board. We also utilize social media, in conjunction with our website and partnerships with local radio stations, to share information about transportation cancellations or delays and other emergency messages.

Niagara Catholic regularly updates its social media accounts between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. From time-to-time, we may update our sites on evenings or weekends to share important information. We make every attempt to acknowledge messages or questions and reply to them in a timely fashion.
Repeating and sharing content
We will retweet and share information from other users or accounts that may be of value to our community. Retweets and shares should not be interpreted as an endorsement of the originator or of any organization.
Responding to questions
Niagara Catholic welcomes comments, suggestions and questions about the content we post on social media channels. While it is not always possible to reply to individual questions, we will address common themes. We encourage anyone with questions about Niagara Catholic to contact the Catholic Education Centre at 905.735.0240. For those who wish to contact us via social media, we ask those with specific questions or concerns to please address them through the message section of Facebook, rather than on the wall.
